Good character knows no boundaries. Character is more than visuals. The word character comes from the Greek word ‘Kharakter’ that means ‘engraved mark’. In this CBZ we will study the Bible characters and apply to engrave them to our young life and leave them to leave a victorious Christian life. A proverb from Steve Jobs (Apple founder) says ..”Upto 30 years you can build your character, after 30 the character that you built will build you “ and other saying goes like this ‘anyone can reach to the top position with your hard work in your life but to stay at the top position only your character helps. CBZ helps the young life to build a character according to the Bible word. CBZ happens on 2nd and 4th Sunday at 6.30 PM in GAW center.

Each year we set ourselves on a mission journey in search of unreached and to bring smile on the faces. Youngsters with a different and unique spirit joins together and set the travel with a Van full of goods and a car. Every year the journey is not a simple but a test for adaptability, long suffering, endurability and serving at any time and at any cost.
It is always a great time of serving, ministering, emphasizing education, interacting with young and enthusiastic crowd and fortunate to participate in their customs and tradition. We see the joy knows no bounds when they receive the clothes and goods. Mission field is always the best chance to make difference in people’s lives and improve the world. To give real service you must add something which cannot be bought or measured with money, and that is sincerity and integrity.
Our first mission to Orissa was in June 2012 along with White cross ministries. It was a great experience and was at awe when we saw the work of God going in such a remote place. The food, customs, language and the life style was entirely different and our GAW members were quick to adapt to this situation. Thriving souls amidst lack of basic amenities like roads, transport, schools, colleges, medical stores… etc opened our hearts and mind to take the love of Jesus to the unreached areas. Spirits of missionaries and nat love,care of the natives inspired us and made our moments lighter. We served 7 tribal regions of Koluva, Katinga, Goberkutty, Kondhakeri, Kakkathunga, Dekaponga and Adava. God though his signs and wonders did mighty things. Many were slained in the spirit and received a fresh anointing in their life. The first evening meeting was held in a dim light as the team started ministering the spirit of God moved in the place and many received the new touch of God. Particularly we walked nearly three and half hours to reach a place to minister to few people there . When we reached down the mountain the villagers came to know about us and around 200 people gathered quickly and spreaded out their mats on the road requested us to tell more about the lord and to pray for them . We saw a great spirit of God working in the midst of the people.
In Goberkutty when we started the prayer we had in the verandha of a house. Spirit of God asked us to have this in the open area outside the house . I asked them to put mats outside and we started ministering. While it was on, many started gathering. One young man was standing at a long distance and was listening to the songs and message. At the end of the message the prayer call was given. This young man ran a fast and stood first requesting prayer. Bro asked him whether he wants the touch and power of God. He said yes and as the prayer went when the spirit of God started moving he was slained and spirit of God asked him to pick for all him up and again he was slained. The whole village witnessed this and many turned for prayers bringing their children. Suddenly the place was vibrant but we couldn’t pray as we have to leave before 6pm due to restricted areas laws. The final day GAW members cooked biriyani for the entire village and the people were served food. It was a great blessing to minister among these tribal people.
Kandhamal was more in news in 2011 due to the communal violence as mobs burnt churches and drove the ministers away. There is no church in kandhamal. The people of God are worshiping under a banyan tree. We have planned to build a church in Kandhamal.
The literacy rate is too poor due to the lack of awareness on importance of education and also due to the lack of transport, which de-motivated the children to travel a long distance for their schools. To sort out this issue, the project team has decided to build a solar powered study centre in “Koluva”, training centre in “Adava” and to train a person from the tribal community as a mentor to ensure sustainable development.
